Fresh From the Maine Coast. Responsibly Sourced and Raised.


American Unagi is raising the bar for fresh, live eels in America. All of our eels are locally sourced and raised to market size right here on the Maine coast. They are grown without the use of hormones or antibiotics.  And since our fishery is managed by the Maine Department of Marine Resources and Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, you can feel confident that American Unagi eels are sourced from a responsibly managed wild stock. So whether you love eel for its incredible taste, its many health benefits, or just want to know what the buzz is about, American Unagi is your best source.
